  • 88.1 in a mess--who dis?

    Strong Es to Canada & north US this afternoon. Got 92.5 Toronto for the first time (WBEE usually dominates). Because of that I was trying for CIND, but didn't get. However, here is a "melange" on 88.1 at 2:00pm EST. Any idea what I had here? Must be a multi ID---maybe someone in the north can flush it out.

    Two great and easy IDs back-to-back! Very nice!! You have WUBJ Jamestown fading into CIND Toronto.

    "WBFO-FM HD-1 (Aww...) WOLN Olean / WUBJ Jamestown (yeah right) ... photo gallery of Wayhome Day One (82...) indie88.com (81 degrees in Buffalo) We'll see you later, bye."
    Sounds like the TOH ID for WBFO and its repeaters followed by talk about the Wayhome Music Festival up on Lake Simcoe happening at the moment.

        Oh, you're getting sloppy with your DXing, Chris ! But yeah, having a local WAY-FM and hearing a rather strong signal mixing with an Es one that mentions the word "Way," I could see how you'd mentally toss it out, but yes, 100% sure that was CIND! Helps to be familiar with the area, and having lived in Buffalo and reading the Toronto Star online every day, the Wayhome mention was a quick starting point to fill in the blanks transcribing that clip, though I quickly could hear the Canadian accent on the ".com" when I first heard it! Once I knew the stations and cities, everything just kinda fell into place, but at first listen, it was like you said ... "melange".

          truly awesome! Forgive me as I am using a smartphone here & my typing stinks. I had 88.1 as CKLN in 1991. Long time eh?.......the clip did sound better on this iPhone!

            Not sure how you want to count it but CIND-FM is not the same station as CKLN-FM. The CKLN license was revoked in 2011 and new applications were accepted. The CIND technical facilities are different - power is significantly higher.

              Yes I was aware of that---I consider it the same station. I always err on the lesser side!
